[♪ dramatic music ♪] >> go away? >> yes. but i think it's fascinating that apparently kelly read the emails to a friend and the friend said they were scary, this wasn't just a cat fight. the broodwells are clearly unstable -- >> stephanie: yeah, she was scared for her life. so jill kelly has hired glory
al -- >> oh really? >> stephanie: yeah all of that attorney privilege she probably would have clammed up on us anyway. there was a lot of booze there. >> booze and dope apparently. >> yeah. >> say it ain't so. >> the best thing to come out of this little pot scenario was when steph mentioned this to me and said maybe i'm high. and i'm like no you can't just have it and be high. >> stephanie: you can't get a contact high. >> no, not just by having it there. >> stephanie: oh, boy. so this is very interesting. because there was one other thing that jill kelly referred to pallially broodwell as this criminal. that they were bothering me and
why are they picking on me instead of this criminal. so that was probably what she was referring to right? >> maybe the email language was making her criminal in some way? >> stephanie: yeah. >> it's just curious to me who these women are and -- don't woe have better things to do? aren't we at war? >> stephanie: they all sound inseparatable. and then this, petraeus was a flirt with both men and women in the media to get favorable press
coverage. >> huh. >> stephanie: he was a flirt with both the men and women -- >> abulient -- >> stephanie: yeah you can't either. i like my general's bubbly. she described him as bubbly. >> we're not talking anderson cooper, right? >> stephanie: no jim. as well as his super human warrior image. director of a media charm campaign in washington is what the reporter called it. and she said it is intoxicating for journalists, it's a thrill traveling with a four-star general, and she said at one point it did sort of pop through
my head, boy, don't you have a war to run here? >> he thought very highly of himself. >> stephanie: apparently. she said i can see how intoxicating it would be. he was a total flirt with both men and women, people respond to it. >> but would the male reporters call it flirty? >> stephanie: no. >> friendly maybe. >> friendly, yeah. >> stephanie: jacki it also is noted that classified information is used as a pickup line in washington. >> really? >> no, the pickup line is i work for so and so. that is the classic pickup line in washington. >> and if you have seen veep you have seen all of that. >> it's not about your own
marriage. it's all about who you work for. which obviously has been incredibly successful because i'm still single. >> stephanie: we love you. [ applause ] >> stephanie: and then they asked for more specifics, and she said i don't know. >> there is lots of inside scoop and gossip. i think people in d.c. from my experience take security clearance very seriously. people aren't loose lipped with anything that requires any sort of classification. >> stephanie: yeah hey, want to know what our troop movements are? [ laughter ] >> nothing gets a girl hotter than that. >> of course fawn hall had
classified documents in her underwear. >> stephanie: yeah paula, she said she didn't get them from him -- >> she has clearance to get classified information, so that's not entirely unheard of but you are not supposed to keep it on your home computer. >> use it as wrapping paper for the holidays. >> stephanie: yes. >> like wrapping presents in the sunday funnies like my grandmother used to do. >> oh, look the nuclear launch patterns.

geek put on your pointy health care geek hat now. >> if i can stop giggling. [♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: inviting federal takeover. that belongs in the isn't it ironic file doesn't it? they will not build the -- bobby jindal, scott walker, rick perry, the governor of oklahoma -- >> yeah, somebody sent me an article last week, and it is actually a good gamble for them, because they have procrastinated so much now that it will be hard to get everything up and running by the beginning of january 2014, so they have to scramble, and they were
procrastinating because they didn't think the president would win a second term. >> stephanie: because they were listening to orca. >> right. so the idea is turn it over to the federal government but it's actually strategically smart on their part because if it is a success, they are continue with it and take it over if it's a failure they can blame it on the federal government. >> stephanie: yeah the obama administration obviously had wanted them to build them, right, so they would have an incentive to make them work, but this way they can scapegoat in case things go wrong. again, didn't we used to try to govern this country in a way that was good for everybody? it's all still politics even after the election.
>> also there's a lot riding on the success or failures of the exchanges for these insurance companies, and they dump a lot of money into congress. >> stephanie: right. the more it complicated the task of the federal government. they can do it themselves have the federal government do it or have a partnership. >> right. it's like a one stop shop and now it will be a lot more complicated than that on the back end, but that's the idea of what we're building. the back end is going to be complicated and that's where the federal government has a lot to do now. >> stephanie: the governor of oklahoma says it does not help
the taxpayers to fund a program that would ultimately be under the control of the federal government. >> it is ultimately under the control of the state. >> stephanie: exactly. >> that makes no sense. >> right. they just argue on a made-up ideology. there is no grounding in fact in any of this. it's like the restaurant owners who want to charge a surcharge because of the health care reform law that has only been partially implemented. i really wish they would stop for a minute, and stop playing politics and start thinking about the practicality of the policies, and really the states that need this the most that are the most aggressive against it. >> stephanie: that is what kills me. we have had heart-breaking calls
from people who are in tears. and in this article i'm looking at it says the same thing. it's a desire to protect themselves politically. nowhere in that sentence is there anything about the people who live in their state. >> i would like to now how many of the conservatives that oppose it have actually read it or understand what it is going to do. because i have spent years listening to the tragedies, and it comes from people period and the insurance companies don't discriminate with your political affiliation. >> stephanie: right. jacki schechner, fantastic.

>> stephanie: yes. >> caller: and these states that refuse to set up or expand medicaid because the supreme court said that was an option -- >> stephanie: right. >> caller: i think it would be a great idea for obama to just extent additional subsidies for those persons in those states that would have normally qualified under the expansion, because they should not have to suffer for their stupid governors and just drive the point home in the 2014 who expanded their subsidies, so that they could get health insurance. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: because i'm a disabled person, and i worked and qualified for medicare under the ssdi plus i paid for a
long-term disability plan for myself, but if i didn't also qualify for medicaid i would be paying an extra $600 a month, and i would die because part of that is for oxygen. if i couldn't pay my oxygen bill i would be dead. i was terrified of mitt romney. >> stephanie: yeah i hear you. now it just came back in my head -- >> with 30 seconds to go. >> stephanie: yeah it's the way these republican governors are running their states. it's like hostess, it's vulture capitalism. all of the ceos got paid and now they are going out of business and blaming the unions. >> exactly. >> stephanie: we'll be right back with charlie pierce on the

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: i just love your synopsis, you say the deep -- occasionally publicly sensible on one issue, most of the young phenoms are either bat [ censor bleep ] crazy or have tiny birds flitting around their heads. he is on the science committee, charlie. >> he is. he will sit there and deliver both sides of the argument. one is all of the scientific evidence in the world, and the other is stuff he learned in sunday school. >> stephanie: yeah. they are in such disarray. they you have the bill o'reillies and rush limbaugh and then people trying to -- jindal and rubio trying to
make more sensible noises, but where is this party going? >> i have no idea. the problem republicans have is they have this incredible tangle of -- of self negating orthodoxies. so maybe you make little inroads in -- you know, in the hispanic community, but meanwhile you have a gender gap the size of the [ inaudible ] and the gay people -- by the way gay people had a better night than president obama did. >> stephanie: yeah. >> so you are still on the wrong side of that one, and there are so many independent centers of power within the conservative movement who don't have to listen -- david frum is making all of the right gobbling noises about what needs to be done. rush limbaugh doesn't have to listen to david frum.
all of these guys are -- the christian coalition, ralph reid doesn't have to listen to david frum. so there's no like jim baker who can come in there and kick everybody's ass and say it is time to get with it and stop talking about god's blessing of rape and how old the earth is. >> stephanie: right. i just read a piece on that. it was one of the main stream media story lines that drove us crazy. gay people aren't going to turn out? and sure enough like you just said, they were actually saying that the gay turnout was extraordinary. >> and you had marriage equality winning at the polls, tammy baldwin in wisconsin, and all of the voter suppression really
engaged people. they only got angrier and more determined while they waited in line. they were arranging for people -- if they had to do something at like 3:00 they were arranging for people to come stand in their place and then come back and get in line. >> stephanie: that's awesome. >> they should haven't to do that, but all of this stuff backfired. >> stephanie: yeah, by the way governor scott is doing an investigation into what could possibly have happened in florida that would have lead to that kind of thing. >> i'm sure he is and he'll discover that the problem is too many people want to vote and we'll have to cut them down. >> stephanie: right. the -- you said mitt romney and
ryan rowland-smith can't seem to shut up. and you say this was a code everybody cracked at approximately the 43rd minute of the first shaft movie in 1941. >> yeah, i think you are seeing this. while everybody wants mitt romney to go away paul ryan still has a constituency even though he was a pathetic national candidate. >> stephanie: he brought nothing to the ticket whatsoever and could deliver neither his home state nor his hometown. and sarah palin was boss tweed compared to paul ryan. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: and you say in a campaign that just ended paul ryan was exposed as a thorough going lightweight, to borrow an
old phrase ryan couldn't lead a whore to bed. and you are right. this is the kind of thing that drives you crazy too. >> yeah if you don't want to listen to me, listen to krugman, because between the two of us paul krugman and i have won a nobel prize. >> stephanie: exactly. you said his ideas fell all around him as the country demonstrated they didn't believe a word he was say. ryan looked like someone groping madly from the bottom of the pool with the tips of his toes. [ laughter ] >> the whole country got a look at this guy. >> stephanie: yeah. >> you know? and what they saw was a very
ambitious conservative paul. and i don't think he came out of the campaign very likable, to be honest with you. >> stephanie: yeah. and the comments afterwards they both seemed so whiny and sore losery. >> the one thing i find unique is i have never seen a campaign that was so absolutely sure it was going to win, and so absolutely god smacked when it didn't. which leads me to believe jim ward -- >> yes, i have been saying we have to hack it back. >> stephanie: but charlie the other thing you bring up is it didn't even come down to just ohio this time. >> no. >> stephanie: and you are
absolutely right, gay people minorities, women -- >> i was just going to say, people where lady bits were in an uproar. >> stephanie: my lady pits -- >> lady pits? >> you were inches away from not being able to get pot presents anymore. >> stephanie: oh charlie pierce. >> we play your lady pits at the -- >> stephanie: i said bits. all right. terry in tennessee, good morning. >> caller: good morning. i just wanted to comment on the fact when you said about people really believing in what the right-wing has to say. here in tennessee they really do take it to heart. we have a republican governor
who owns a large oil company here, and they even preach it from the pulpit on sundays. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: and they get the most federal money. agriculture, infrastructure and they are crying the blues here and sometimes they get a little wild about it. >> they are getting a lot of free stuff. >> stephanie: thank you santy. good morning. >> caller: good morning. you covered almost everything i wanted to talk about, but i live in florida and our governor has turned down -- to build the speed train, and turned down the medicaid turned down the exchange and same with jindal and the guy up in florida, and it's all of these republican governors, they say they want to

discussion about the fiscal cliff again. i was reading an article that said republicans are trying to make noises like they are willing to compromise and softening their stance but are they really? because i'm not hearing any different policy specifics, are you? >> i'm not. other than the language being a little bit more conciliatory. i'm here in ohio so i'm not at the table with the leadership but the rhetoric sounds decent, but this is what they do. they try to kick the can down the road slow the game down, pass the ball around and their goal would be to wait until obama would lose some momentum after the election, and i think it's important for us to act now and use this momentum we have and the january 1st date with the tax increase to our
advantage. you don't always have the advantage, and i think we have the strongest hand we are ever going to have moving forward, so we better use it now. >> stephanie: in some ways it's like the election never happened. literally to have people proposing what was essentially mitt romney's plan is a little stunning to me. this election as the president said, largely was about math. and the math doesn't work. right? >> right. and i thought he was extremely clear in his press conference before he left to go oversees when he said this isn't about some phony math about manipulating calculations through the budget and i think he was pretty clear on that and that gave me a lot of confidence that he is going to hold their feet to the fire and i think through the negotiations
happening now, the staff as well is holding their feet to the fire. >> stephanie: how do you see this playing out, representative? are we going to get another of these short-term fixes that are not, again, a long-term solution to all of this? >> i think that's a possibility. the republicans would rather say okay. let's get in the next year, the narrative changes. we all go through the holidays and forget about what is going on. here we go. and just continue to do these two-month at a time resolutions. the president learned from what happened a few years ago. and no one is going to blame the president of the united states. on the ground sit going to be the republican extremist who get
the blame for this. >> stephanie: yeah, i agree with you. and this is going to be the question, is are they going to do something because it will be too political damaging. look at what happened last time they took us to the brink, and we got downgraded. is that -- i hate to imply that they won't do the right thing just for the sake of doing the right thing, but they won't, right?

redistricting. so there's a real -- you listen to scarborough and these guys and they are like we have got to get it straight. it's really funny to watch. and the reality is will they recognize and change now or -- but if they don't -- obama has got to do what clinton did to gingrich. you have to spank them. when you spank them, then they come around. >> stephanie: yeah, i agree with you. you are probably referring to comprehensive immigration reform, and i thought once again if they won't do i because it is the right thing to do some of them are stupid enough to say, oh, it's so we can get the latino vote back, but i think this is a real opportunity to get this done, right? >> yeah, absolutely. this is about moving the ball forward and figuring out how to advance the progressive cause, so advance the agenda to bring
more justice reduce suffering and all of the things i think we believe in as democrats, and you can learn from the movie "lincoln" that is being highlighted now. this is the political process. these are a bunch of human beings, flip flopping all over the place, constantly moving positions. how do you use whatever situation you are currently in to move the ball down the field. a lot of people were saying single payer, but we couldn't get one -- we couldn't get a public option, but we got everybody health care, and now we build from there. and i would love to see this situation be exploited not in the negative sense but taken advantage of to bring fairness back to the tax code. at some point we are going to have growth and an expanding economy. the question is when that happens are we going to lift
everybody up with us or will it be the same of what just happened in the last ten years. >> stephanie: we were just talking about several republican governors refusing to enact these changes, which means the federal government has to do it which they were screaming about in the first place. but, again the election is over. at what point is this just a political tantrum on some people's part? >> well, the risk they run -- and governor kasick is doing that in ohio too and then they will have the feds come in and run the exchange which is fine, because they don't want to do it, but the risk they run, steph, is they are going to look even more extreme and they are not going to get the message from the election. i see some of these guys that got elected in places like oklahoma, deep south, red
district, and they say there was no mandate for balance in my congressional race, and you are scratching your head going dude i hate to break it to you, but it's not all about you, and you watch the senate win seats they should have no shot at winning, so that's the risk they run. they run the risk of further alienating themselves. >> stephanie: representative you bought up redistricting, when can that be undone? >> it's done by the state and so it's got -- i think it is going to have to be a long-term sustained grassroots effort. we had something on the ballot that was very similar to what california did, but it was a presidential year, sherrod brown
was up and now the big race this year, and money was being allocated towards other priorities, but you have to do it at the a state level, and it probably needs to be on an off-year election and we're going to have to rely on our allies in labor as to why this would be better. when we passed health care a couple of years ago, we had five or six additional members in the ohio delegation and we lost them all. so -- >> stephanie: and that's the bad news, and yet the good news is despite citizens united and in spite of all of these republican voter suppression efforts, it all backfired, right? >> yeah. and you look at all of the money obama had to spend. fortunately they were a lot smarter, and it is heartening
though. we knocked on doors. my staff volunteers their time. i was walking around for the whole week leading up to the election, and there is nothing more beautiful than when you knock on 50 or 100 doors a day, and think there are thousands of people in ohio doing the same exact thing, and god i hope it works, and you go home, and go to watch the returns, and doggone it, it worked. >> stephanie: ohio goes blue and you watch the sad faces on fox news.
